JOURNAL OF RESOURCES AND ECOLOGY
The Journal of Resources and Ecology is an international English language journal that was started in 2010 in accordance with the General Administration of Press and Publication of the People's Republic of China. The journal is jointly sponsored by the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research (IGSNRR), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the China Society of Natural Resources, and the Ecological Society of China.
The Journal of Resources and Ecology's mission is to create a platform for the promotion of international academic exchange. The journal aims to provide a comprehensive representation of resources and ecology research, and to present, among other things, the state of the art in scientific research, important progress in regard to the key issues involved, and the results of cutting-edge research in the fields of natural resources and ecology. Publication of JRE represents an important addition to other journals in the interdisciplinary research areas of resources and ecology
The journal's Editorial Board consists of a group of well-known scientists from China and abroad who are active in the fields of natural resources, ecology, and related research areas. JRE’s Editor-in-Chief is Professor Li Wenhua, Professor Li Wenhua is also an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE).
Papers published in JRE will come, primarily, from China, but papers submitted by researchers from other countries are also appreciated.
The journal will publish special issues focusing on specific thematic subjects.
Authors are encouraged to submit papers to be included in the journal in one or other of the categories:
-Research progress and conference reports
-Introduction of key research projects and research institutions
-Introduction of other publications
The Journal of Resources and Ecology will be published quarterly on the 30th of March, June, September, and December, and printed on A4 paper with color inserts when necessary. In 2010, distribution will be handled by the editorial office at IGSNRR.
Although we face tremendous challenges with this introduction of a new international scientific publication, and in promoting the journal and its content internationally, we are firmly convinced that by the joint efforts of JRE’s Chinese and foreign colleagues, and the strong support from our donor organizations, we will succeed in our efforts and overcome the difficulties ahead. We intend to proceed by the process of learning by doing.
The journal and its editorial office have many enthusiastic collaborators at home and abroad, as well as positive support from leaders of Chinese management bodies, and the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research. We believe that in the very near future this journal will make an important contribution to sustainable development not only for China but also globally.
China’s unique natural environment, long history of research, and a traditional ideology of harmonizing nature and humankind, will provide the necessary conditions for the fruitful development of this journal. This new journal, like a small tree, has been planted in rich soil.
